Michelle Heide Promoted to Project Manager

E.T. Gresham Company is excited to announce that Michelle Heide has been promoted to Project Manager. Heide began working in the construction industry soon after graduating ODU with a B.S. in Civil Engineering Technology. Since joining the Gresham team as a Project Engineer in 2018, she has achieved her LEED Green Associate certification from the U.S. Green Building Council and worked on a variety of projects, including Surry County Rescue Squad + Emergency Operations Center, Hope Springs Veterinary Clinic in Virginia Beach, Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) Gross Anatomy Lab, and several historic projects.

Outside of her primary job duties, she is involved in corporate business development–recently joining Norfolk’s Downtown 100 (DT100)–and serves as company liaison for our Construction Management tool, Procore. Her proactive approach to Project Management, positive feedback from project team members, and successful client relations have built the foundation for Heide to thrive as Project Manager.

Perhaps eclipsing these many accomplishments, Heide is one of our youngest employees to hold this position and the first female Project Manager in the company’s 104+ years!
